(AP) – Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is brushing aside results of last week’s presidential election showing that President Donald Trump lost his bid for a second term. He’s also dismissing as “ridiculous” questions about whether Trump’s evidence-free claims of fraud could hurt America’s credibility when weighing in on foreign elections.

One of Trump’s most loyal Cabinet members, Pompeo told reporters Tuesday with a grin that the “transition” to a second Trump term would be “smooth.” But he later said the State Department was prepared for any eventuality, including a scenario in which Biden takes office.

Trump has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden. And he also warned that conversations Biden might have with foreign leaders could violate U.S. law.
